Changing Rules for Hiring Foreign Talent

Multinational companies face growing challenges in structuring employment for foreign nationals in China. Companies need to not only consider business needs, but also individual demands and laws across a range of jurisdictions. Particularly as laws and regulations regarding expatriate work arrangements change, companies require clear legal guidance on visas and employment laws, tax implications, employee benefits, running global internship programs and other issues.

To help companies understand the complex legal and practical aspects of bringing international talent in China, the US-China Business Council (USCBC) is pleased to invite member companies to a morning briefing on the topic. Zheng Lu, a Partner at Baker McKenzie who specializes in strategic employment counselling, will speak about the employment landscape for foreign nationals in China. Nancy Lai, a Partner in the Baker McKenzie’s taxation practice, will speak to tax-related issues from both the corporate and individual perspective. Jeremy Friedlein, the Director of CET Shanghai, will speak on how companies can legally hire foreign interns under the new S2 visa program, as well as how visa regulations are impacting early career professionals. 

This event is for USCBC member companies and invited guests only. Registration is required.
